Welcome to the Forum!
The problem with using filters on wide angle zooms, is that sometimes the edges of the filter show up in the shots. Sometimes you can get very thin filters to solve this problem, but not always.
If the filter is just a UV/clear filter used for protection, the solution may be to just remove the filter when shooting at the widest settings. Which lens and type of filter were you using and at what setting do you have the problem?

I have this problem when I use my widest angle lenses. I even bought the B&W Thin Framed filters, and still have a touch of vignetting on the edges.
This is usually only on my 17-35mm lens though. So I'm thinking it's more of the superwides than the filters themselves.
Set the camera and lens on a tripod and take a picture with the filter on, then take the filter off and snap the same image. If the picture looks the exact same, then you know it's not the filters fault.
Good luck, and let us know the results
You may have to use a Cokin type filter rather than one that screws on. I sometime just hold one in front of my lens when using a very wide opening (like 10mm) because of that problem.

Vignetting is seen in many different situations but most of the times it is caused by a wide angle lens. Vignetting is more prone to happen on Full Frame sensors because of the size of the sensors itself. If you happen to get vignetting on a 10mm APS-C-size sensor, for example, the same problem is also likely on a 24mm full frame sensor. Thin filters do help, but only up to a certain point.
